New Oneworld Lounge Opens at LAX
Qantas, British Airways, and Cathay Pacific Airways announced the opening of a new lounge for all oneworld member airlines at Los Angeles International Airport. The facility is located in the Tom Bradley International Terminal and managed principally by Qantas.
The lounge is open to first and business-class ticket-holders traveling on flights operated by any oneworld member airline, as well as passengers who hold Emerald or Sapphire status in any oneworld member airline’s frequent flyer program. The lounge can currently accommodate up to 400 passengers, and when it is completed early next year, it will be able to seat a total of 600.
The facility is designed with a fireplace and a glass atrium in the center of the facility, and offers passengers several food and beverage options, including a dining area serving multicultural cuisine, food carts serving appetizers including cod tacos with red cabbage slaw and Asian-spiced chicken wings, a cocktail bar, and a hot and cold buffet.
The lounge also has high-speed Wi-Fi Internet service, PC workstations, and nine shower suites. In addition, seven more shower suites, as well as a Family Zone for passengers traveling with children, will be added in the near future.
A new first-class lounge for oneworld members is also expected to open at Los Angeles International Airport in the near future. The lounge will accommodate first-class and Emerald Status passengers who are currently using the business-class lounge.
